April 4th 2020 : As you might imagine, we are extremely busy at the moment so it is taking us longer than usual to send out orders. Because of the Easter bank holiday we lose 2 days when plants can be collected or delivered and this adds to the situation.
I apologise for any delay but please be patient with us. We have lots of plants and we will get your orders through, they just might take a little longer.
Our couriers, DPD have updated their procedures to avoid contact- their driver will now sign for you upon delivery and in addition to their online tracking service, you can now leave a note on your door as to where to your parcel can be left if you do not wish to open the door. In either case, a photo will be taken for confirmation.
If you experience problems placing your order, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone me on 01647 253004.
We've been growing plants here in Devon for more than 30 years but don't be fooled into thinking that the climate will make our plants soft and tender; we are nearly 1000 feet above sea level on the edge of Dartmoor and in a 'normal' season would expect to get 45 inches of rain a year. Temperatures in the winter can fall to below -8 Centrigrade so we think it quite likely that most of our plants will go on to more favourable climes!
Following on from Aubrieta in the Spring garden are the alpine or rockery Phlox.
Forming spreading carpets of leaves which are literally smothered in flowers in Spring, Phlox come in a range of colours from reds, blues, purple or white depending on variety.
This photo shows Phlox 'Emerald Cushion Blue', a lovely misty blue, strong growing variety.
